NAME
       Padre::Search - The Padre Search API

   SYNOPSIS
         # Create the search object
         my $search = Padre::Search->new(
             find_term => 'foo',
         );

         # Execute the search on the current editor
         $search->search_next(Padre::Current->editor);

   DESCRIPTION
       This is the Padre Search API. It allows the creation of abstract search
       object that can independently search and/or replace in an editor
       object.

   METHODS
   matches
         my ($first_char, $last_char, @all) = $search->matches(
             text      => $search_text,
             regex     => $search_regexp,
             from      => $from,
             to        => $to,
             backwards => $reverse,
         );

       Parameters:

       * The text in which we need to search

       * The regular expression

       * The offset within the text where we the last match started so the
       next
         forward match must start after this.

       * The offset within the text where we the last match ended so the next
         backward match must end before this.

       * backward bit (1 = search backward, 0 = search forward)
